Pirates and cowboys
Pop guns and cheap toys
Out in the tree house we made all kinds of noise
Well I would find a new trap door in mind
with all spare tire
I'd leave the world behind
grass stains on blue jeans
Flutter away in the tire swing
watch the rollie pollies
curl like tiny beads

And I would think
What a giant I must seem
But a friend I would be to all the smaller things

Oh how those days go by
Growing older now
I wish I could close my eyes and turn back time
Well don't you miss all those days?
Of younger child
Living audaciously
Without a care or fragment of doubt

So go onward
You're a youthful soul
To a land of make believe pretending and day dreams
That's the only place you'll find
The child inside

Band-Aids and cartoons
Tooth fairy and apple juice
Down at the park one day
I get mud on my brand new shoes
And mom would say, "Son how'd they get that way?"
I would reply, "They'd get dirty soon anyway."

Blue eyes and blond hair
Spankings and teddy bears
Wrestle my brother ten thousand times a year
And we would fight
Yeah kick we'd scratch and bite
But the end of the night
We'd hug and make it right

Oh how those days go by
Growing older now
I wish I could close my eyes and turn back time
Well
Oh how those days go by
Growing older still
Watching the world pass too
And then it's through

Well don't you miss all those days
Of younger child
Living out days you see
Without a care or fragment of doubt

So go onward
You're youthful soul
To a land of make believe, pretending and day dreams

So go onward
You're youthful soul
Open up that mind of yours
Let imagination take control

    Pirates and cowboys
    Pop guns and CHEAP TOYS
    OUT IN THE tree house we made all kinds of noise
    Well I would find a new trap door in MIND
    with all spare tire
    I�d leave the world behind
    grass stains on blue jeans
    Flutter away in the tire swing
    watch ROLLIE POLLIES
    CURL up like tiny BEADS

    And I would think
    What a giant I must seem
    But a friend I would be to all the smaller things

    Oh how those days go by
    Growing older now
    I wish I could close my eyes and turn back time
    Well don�t you miss all those days?
    Of younger child
    Living AUDACIOUSLY
    Without a care or fragment of doubt

    So go onward
    You're a youthful soul
    To a land of make believe pretending AND day dreams
    That's the only place you�ll find
    The child inside

    Band-Aids and cartoons
    Tooth fairy and apple juice
    Down at the park one day

    Well don�t you miss all those days

    So go onward
    You're youthful sou
    OPEN UP THAT MIND OF YOURS
